Fasana-e-Ajaib: Qist#35: Jadugarni se muqablaa

Kaafi din ho gaye mujhe is muhim se door…. aakhir khayal aaya ke aap mein se jo is silsile ka intezaar kar rahe honge, un par kya beet rahi hogi. Magar main majboor tha, tab bhi taakhir ke liye pasheman hoon. Chaliye dekhe ke aage shahzaade Jaan-e-Alam par kya guzarti hai……. Unwaan se aap kuch samajh to gaye hi honge, isi liye aage ka qissa aap ke nazar karne mein taakhir karna danishmandi nahi hogi…..

~~~~ Shahzaada Jaan-e-Alam aur uska qafilaa safar ki manzilen tayy karta huya usi hauz ke kinaare aa pahuncha jis mein ghota khaake shahzaada museebat mein phansa tha. Hauz ke kinaare kheme lag gaye. Shahzaade ne voh hauz malika Mehr-Nigar aur Anjuman Ara ko dikhaya.

Shahzaada safar ka thaka huya tha. Sooraj dooba to usne namaaz padhi aur let raha. Neend mein tha ke Anjuman Ara ki ek khaas kaneez ghabrayi huyi daudhi aayi, boli “Shahzaade ki umr daraaz ho. Shahzaadi ki tabiyat na-saaz hai, kaleje mein dard hai. Voh naqsh-Suleimani aur lauh dijiye ke dhokar pilaa den.” Yeh khabar sun kar shahzaada ghabraa gaya. Aese hosh udhe ke be-soche samjhe lauh aur naqsh uske hawaale kar diye.

Lauh aur naqsh ka dena tha ke naqshaa bigarh gaya. Aisi haulnak aawaz aayi ke sab ghabraa gaye. Jo jahan baitha tha, vahi baitha rah gaya. Gaur kiya to pata chala ke har ek jaandar, kya insaan, kya haiwaan, sab ka neeche ka aadha dhadh pathar ka ho gaya.  Yeh aisi museebat aa padhi ke har taraf kohraam mach gaya. Dekhte dekhte kaali ghata ghir aayi. Sab darre sehme ek doosre ko dekhne lage. Is abr mein se ek khunkaar azhda niklaa jiske munh se shole nikalte the. Is azhde par ghusse se bahri huyi ek aurat sawaar thi. Jaan-e-Alam ne pehchana ke vahi jadugarni hai. Yaqeen ho gaya ke ab maut nazdeek aayi.

Jaan-e-Alam se kaha “Kaho ab kya iraada hai?” Usne kaha “Vahi jo thaa.” Boli: “Ab woh naqsh-Suleimani aur laJh kaha hain jis ke bharose koodte the. Agar apni aur apne lashkar ki zindagi chahte ho to Mehr-Nigar aur Anjuman Ara se rishta torh do aur hamara hukm mano varna tum sab ki laashen zara der baad cheelon aur kauwon ko khila doongi”.

Jaan-e-Alam ne jawaab diya “Yeh nahi ho sakta. Agar yun hi maut aayi hai to mar rahenge.” Yeh jawaab sun kar voh jal gayi. Ghusse se rangat badal gayi, bad-bada ke Jaan-e-Alam par phoonka to aadha dhadh pathar ka tha ya halq tak pathhar ka ho gaya. Us ne azhde par chadh kar awaaz di “Ae badnaseeb! Aaj ki aur raat ki mohlat hai. Agar subah ko hukm na maana to sara lashkar barbaad kar doongi. In mein har ek ka khoon teri gardan par hoga.”

Jadugarni to yeh keh ke hawa ho gayi. Malika aur Anjuman Ara apne apne khemon se ghabraa ghabraa ke pukarti thi. Jab tak voh aadha pathar ka raha jawaab deta raha. Ab halq patthar ka huya to awaaz bhi band ho gayi. Jawaab na mila to donon ne sar peet liya. Is tarah cheekh cheekh ke royi jaise koi kisi ke marne pe rota hai, har kheme mein kohraam barpa tha.

Ittefaq se idhar se malika ke baap ka shagird uda ja raha tha. Voh bhi apne ustaad ki tarah jadu ke fan mein maahir tha. Zameen par uttar ke dekha ke ek bhari lashkar museebat mein phansa huya hai. Har ek ka aadha dhadh pathar ka hai. Samajh gaya ke yeh sab Shahpal ke jadu mein giriftaar hai. Logon se haal poocha. Jab pata chala ke ustaad ki beti museebat mein mubtala hai to sar peet ke chillaya aur kheme ke darwaaze par aaya.

Shahzaadi ne kaha “Bhai is waqt kya pardah? Tum aap andar aake ankhon se hamara haal dekh lo.” Andar aaya to shahzaadi ko bhi usi haal mein paaya, bahut roya aur chillaya. Bola “Mujh mein itni taqaat nahi ke Shahpal ki barabari kar sakun. Aap ke vaalid ke baghair yeh museebat talni mushkil hai. Main jaake unhe laata hoon.” Yeh keh ke hawa ki tarah udh gaya. aur us buzurg ke paas pahunch lashkar ki tabahi ka saara haal jo aankhon se dekha tha use bataya aur kaha ke “Shaam tak vahan na pahunche to un aafat ke maaron par badi museebat padhegi aur subah tak koi jeeta na bachega.”

Yeh qist yahan khatam…
